Wednesday Night Cruise-In
Wednesday Night Cruise-Ins at the Gilmore Car Museum have become an annual summer tradition!
It is FREE to bring your collector car on the grounds during Cruise-In and the event is open to the public. On good weather nights, the fun starts at 5 pm and runs until 8 pm, with both George & Sally’s authentic 1941 Blue Moon Diner and The Grill serving hot dogs, hamburgers, and creamy old-fashioned custard throughout the evening.With live music providing the soundtrack, these are evenings you and your family won’t forget! So, plan to bring your ride, snap a photo in front of the 1930s Shell station, cruise our amazing grounds, and enjoy an evening of great wheels and memories.
With the exception of the Blue Moon Diner, the Grill, and the Gilmore Bar, all other Museum buildings are CLOSED during Cruise-Ins. If inclement weather is predicted, the Cruise-In will still take place, but scheduled cruise time will be shortened to 7pm.
